Inspired by Marimekko

I've made two cards inspired by this Marimekko pattern that I found in a photo on Pinterest.




One for this week's Less is More Sketch:





(Hero Arts and Papertrey stamps, and copic markers)


And one for this week's CASual Friday Challenge, to make a Birthday Card to celebrate their first anniversary!



(Papertrey stamps, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Black ink)

both cards are great, but I like the second one a little bit more,
the repetation of the dots from the paper before the sentiment is simple great :-)
